Megan Dietrich is a multimedia artist interested in popular culture, colours and textures, and their relationship to our visual experience. She uses acrylic paint, pencil, ink, charcoal and other media to produce emotional and introspective markmaking that carries the eye. After a brief stint in studio art training, Megan finished her degree at the University of Victoria in 2012 and worked in a number of creative industries including film/television, art education and graphic design.
Megan grew up in Powell River, and much of her painting and material language comes from that experience - surrounded by community, nature and a multitude of rich organic elements. There is always a fluidity to her work; room for mixture, variation and expression.
